Scope of Work
Drafting Summary for Policy Makers from Vulnerability Assessment APIK
USAID’s five year “Adaptasi Perubahan Iklim dan Ketangguhan” (APIK) Project supports the Government of Indonesia to strengthen climate and disaster resilience, working in an integrated manner from the national level down to the regional and community levels. In support of this overall objective, APIK seeks to:
• Mainstream climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction into national and sub-national governance frameworks;
• Build the capacity of local communities and the private sector to address climate change and weather-related natural hazards; and
• Support the use of information for climate and disaster risk management among key stakeholders.
At the national level, APIK provides technical assistance to national level ministries to strengthen their understanding of climate change (including climate variability) and the impact of climate-related natural disasters, and to mainstream tools and approaches that facilitate the systematic consideration of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in their core planning, budgeting, and operations as well as monitoring and evaluation. Given the cross-cutting nature of CCA/DRR, APIK works with economy-wide agencies—such as the Ministry of Planning (Bappenas) and the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB)—as well as technical ministries such as Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Public Works and Public Housing (PUPERA), Agrarian and Spatial Planning (ATR), and Agriculture (Kementan).
At the subnational level, APIK seeks to build the capacity of local governments in East Java, Southeast Sulawesi, and Maluku to address CCA & DRR through planning and operations, public outreach, and the institutionalization of resilience-building practices in day-to-day activities. With a regional office located in the respective provinces, the Project works in targeted landscapes with the communities on the front lines of climate change and disaster resilience in the target districts/cities to implement measures and link those measures to the relevant government processes in a holistic systems approach.
As the follow up of the vulnerability assessment and climate resilience strategy in the regions, there is a need to draft a summary for policy makers. This document is essential for informing the decision makers at provincial and districts and cities level on why they need to adapt and build resilience. Therefore, APIK intends to hire an Expert in the Climate Change Impact Assessment as Short Term Technical Assistance (STTA).
The STTA draft a summary for policy makers from vulnerability assessment and climate resilience strategy for each provinces and landscapes.

1. Summary for Policy Makers for VA at East Java Province;
2. Summary for Policy Makers for VA at Brantas Hulu Landscape;
